meant play by jon jay with the backhand right on the ground. blanco had gone around second base. now allen craig and everybody on the card infield are saying that he is out of the baseline, and now first base umpire, miller, will get help from gibson. >> meanwhile craig is saying he tagged him, and looked like he got him on the back. >> tim: he did. >> joe: we will get a conference now with the umpires. and he got him on the back. >> tim: he clearly did. >> joe: it should be a double play. miller had a great view of it, but didn't see it. and if somebody else saw something different, then they will call him out. if not, it will be one on, one out. and nobody saw it. >> tim: of course, that is not reviewable. mike matheny arguing, but bill miller -- i beg your pardon, gibson, second base umpire, would have had the best shot at it but he was out in center field making sure that jon jay made the catch, which he did. >> joe: and matheny is still letting bill miller hear it. take a look at the positioning of the umpires. greg gibson, the second base umpire. he stays put. he's right there.

's jon jay, who has one of the five cardinal hits. strike 1. affeldt has retired all three hitters he's faced. jay with a single, a strikeout and a groundout. mitchell boggs gets loose. good breaking ball has jay flinching, it's 0-2. ball 1. we talked about the cardinals throwing the 3-1 series lead to the braves with great pitching back in 1996. when they lost games five, six and seven, they lost 14-0, 3-1, 15-0. so one run scored for the cardinals the final three games in '96. if they are shutout here tonight, it will be one run scored in the final three games to blow that three-games-to-one advantage here in 2012. jay lays off that pitch in the dirt. 2-2. that was tony la russa's game back in '96. jay holds up. 2-2. >> tim: tony la russa that year replacing joe torre. joe torre, 1996, everybody knows the manager of the new york yankees and they go on to win a world championship. >> joe: here's the 3-2. jay takes a two-out walk and that didn't miss by much. it will bring in the switch-hitting beltran with two out. >> tim: one thing about the cardinals, joe, in their long history, th
